america's bread and butter literally. host: alex tweets -- one other tweet this morning from brian -- brought up this morning that latino voters are urging obama to focus on immigration. here is a story from "the new york times." we will focus more on that issue and issues facing latino "ters later on in today's washington journal." we will go to the democrat line. what is the most import issue for you in the second term? caller: the most apparent issue that the news wanted to think is the fiscal cliff. it is interesting the word fiscal cliff is a cliche for "how much money is going to be taken out of the $150 million ira's of mr. romney." understand that the fiscal cliff was imposed by bush to keep the tax benefits for the rich in place. in a compromise, obama continued those for another year. in 2008 there were supposed to run out. nobody is talking about the compromise that he made not to actually bring the the 2008 provisions into place. we have four things we're looking at. they can lead that policy continue. some say it will increase spending cuts and will weigh heavily on gr

boehner talking about the framework that was outlined in the media. [video clip] >> to talk about america oppose the fiscal problem, i outlined a framework that deals with reforming our tax code and reforming the our spending. i believe these remarks i have outlined in our meeting is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness, we have power revenue on the table. as long as it is accompanied by a significant spending cuts. while we will continue to have revenue on the table, it will be incumbent from my colleagues to show the american people we are serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal dilemma. i believe we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. host:off of twitter -- host: joe, are you there? caller: yes, what i would like to know is it seems like none of them can come to a conclusion on anything. why do we that start taking their pay and deducting their pay until they can come to an agreement? or tell them all to get out of there and leave it up to the americans to vote as if we were v

has america on his side. i think the administration thinks america is on his side. i think there is a sense that the democrats managed to maintain control of the senate pedometer democrats won at the white house. i think there's a feeling among democrats that they wanted these things, they should be able to put these things into place that they campaigned on which is largely taxing the rich. the house republicans feel like they also have a mandate, they kept their power, they kept the house and proposed something much different. and so the tricky thing is, everyone feels like to have a mandate moving forward. we will have to wait and see who ends up a bending and who does not. host: anything else you want to respond to? guest: i think one of the other interesting debates happening now is how important is it to deal with the deficit now obverses later. the caller really raised about and said, the debt is important. and that is one thing that the democrats think. even if there is a deficit deal and it is based on this perceived mandate of the obama administration believes it has, i feel

. caller: america has no real influence in the middle east. i say that because we have been trying to negotiate this cents ronald reagan. and if we had any influence with the arab-speaking population, we basically would have succeeded by now. the reality is, for half of the countries, we are nothing more than ana tm, and the other half, -- we are nothing more nothingan atm and for the others we are nothing more than an antagonist. it is not something we discuss in the news. therefore, all it is is people attacking israel. it is not i believe what the underlying theme is for the muslim population. and that is to regain glory of the old muslim empire. host: any sense that the united states involvement over the decades, any sense that the united states had a positive impact and things could have been worst? caller: no. of all of the countries there, with the exception of jordan, no country really allows us to influence them. host: a tweet from gary, he says our role in the middle east should be non. israel takes care of its own. not our business. let us go to steve, fla., on our line
